Fairy vs Faerie

Most of the people use fairy and faerie in the same sense and do not consider having many differences. For them, it is just the difference in spelling and nothing else. Both fairy and faerie are used for two different mythical spirits or figures.

These fairies are considered to elevate to higher levels through their impartial and loving service. Generally, a fairy refers to the young spirit which is in the mid-level of growth. They are considered to be lower to “sylph” and higher to “elf.”

“Faerie” is a word that has been derived from Gaelic “fear shidhe,” which means “man of the shee.”

  1. Thank you! In writing, I was confused about the difference between the two!

  2. Nice post,

    After I finished reading your post I made sure to take notes [laughs], I always knew there was a difference but I could never find anything informative, not even in books! So thank you.

  3. This article is invalid and insulting on so many levels. Go to the book store. Look at a book on faeries if you want to know the difference.
